Pours virtually black from the bottle. The thin, tan creamy head soon fades. Some beers of this style have notes of prune in the aroma but I don’t remember one with as much prune as this. Smells like prune, more prune, and apple juice. The roasted dark chocolate first starts to compete with the prune on the swill, and underneath it all lingers a pervasive note of apple juice. Finishes much the same, full of apple, prune, and roasted grains. Body is thick and oily, carbonation is mild, alcohol is hidden. Reading this all back it doesn’t sound especially appetizing, but the chocolate and fruit work very well together. Dangerously drinkable. Nice. Sigmund (8249) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 7, 2018

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2018 Nice imperial porter. Lots of flavour but stays quite a same. Full body. Quite boozy. Needs more flavours and less booze. Aminatchime (287) - BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2018

Bottle. 2014 Vintage . Pours black , medium sized, medium low stability, mocha colored head. Smell is roasty, very minor booze notes rising up. pure cocoa as well ( the very, very intense chocolate ) thus, not sweet at all ( in the perception of the scent ) . Taste is full, roasty, tad bitter, very creamy, dark chocolate ( not as pure as the scent provided, a much more balanced, more 'sweeter' chocolate now, without being sweet overall. dark fruits, some berries as well. very intense taste, very complex and simply put, very very good ! doesn't show any age problems (yet?) which is also proving the brewer's skill ( or luck ? ;) ) allround, this is indeed a great beer. Body is medium-thick to thick ( for the style, overall, this is syrupy ) and carbonation is medium low to low ( the way I like it) . This ain't a dissapointement at all !

Czarne nieprzezroczyste piwo z kremową obfitą pianą. Aromat czekolady, pralinek z alkoholem. W smaku czekoladki, trochę ciemnych owoców, bourbon, lekko alkoholowe. Słodkie, goryczka na niskim poziomie. Przyjemne rozgrzewające piwo Mindwarp (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2017
Pours black with no real head. There is a real sweet aroma of chocolate. Flavor is more of a cherry flavor with hints of chocolate and roasted malts with some booze. Overall a real good Porter but I'm real picky when I get a porter and I have other favorites. LazyPyro (2120) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2017
355ml bottle, a little over a year old I think. Pours black with a thin tan head which quickly disappears. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, chocolate. Taste is sweet, dark malts, dark fruits, berries, molasses, chocolate, some coffee, slight booziness and warming sensation but it's well hidden considering the ABV. Full bodied, soft carbonation, smooth velvety mouthfeel. A fantastic imperial porter. thomat (4336) - Goteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 On tap @ BierCaB. Very dark brown with a small tan head. Malty and fruity tones. Malt, fruit, caramel and hops. Full body with a long bitter / fruity finish.
